What does the Holy Spirit do

What role does the Holy Spirit play?

The holy spirit is mainly here to guide us. Let’s say you are in the middle of making a decision and you don’t know what path to take. Ask the Holy Spirit (believing in Christ) and He will guide you. The scripture says;

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Mathew 7:7

Is it easy? Not really because the flesh (emotions) usually takes over decision making and does not allow the Holy Spirit to guide us. God speaks through His Spirit; but one tends not to listen because worries unfortunately are bigger than their faith; which is the main issue. The main way to see God is through His spirit; the spirit that was left on earth by Jesus Christ.

What does the Holy Spirit do once one listens?

He guides and leads us to the appropriate path; slowly removing fears. However, one must pray and daily increase their faith to prevent the enemy’s spiritual attack to knock them down. One way to do this is by attending a congregation and bible study because it is important to feed the spirit with the appropriate spiritual food; which is God’s word.  

What does He consist of?

As one you already know, the Holy Spirit is a person; therefore, He has his own Character which consists of “God’s seven spirits” He also consists of fruits. Just like we have a spirit, He has “fruits”; which we must all be filled with. Just as you may have your “gifts” or talents which you’d like to pass on to your generations; so, does He.  There is so much to learn about He who guides us; we must learn it all to live a God-fearing life.

Who is the Holy Spirit

Is He a person or a thing? Many people believe that “The Holy Spirit” refers to an individual who lives […]

  1. This is a really lovely post, the holy spirit works in a way that we can’t understand sometimes, but he has given us the grace to know more of him through prayers and by increasing our faith to prevent spiritual accident. The seven fruits of the spirit are really useful for we Christians and through the holy spirit, we can ask for things from God and speak with him in a more coordinated way. Thanks for sharing this spiritual and useful article, it’ll really help in my spiritual endeavors.

  2. Praise Jesus for this post and you have done with  it so well. The holy spirit is truly a person and he is our guide. He speaks to us and manifests through us. Through him, we can communicate with God and through him we can ask God for our hearts wants. Nice one Linda. Very good!

  3. This is very amazing. Thanks for clarifying this confusing notion that I have about the holy spirit. I use to think that the holy spirit is just a spirit that doesn’t reply man or do anything for man. Thanks for clarifying how helpful the holy spirit can be, I now know that he can be my companion and I can ask did anything I want from him as a believer. Thanks so niche,I am grateful. Kudos

  4. I know the Holy Spirit as the great Helper. It is easy to think that you can call on the Holy Spirit when in need, but indeed, the flesh is weak. When a situation arises, we fail to rest on the Lord and trust His Holy Spirit to work on us. Your pointer on feeding our spirit with the word of God is true.That is the only way we can build our Faith and not get distracted by unnecessary fear.

    Thank you for the great explanation of what the Holy Spirit does. We just need to let Him take away our worries and fears and let Him lead the way.

    Great inspiration!

  5. Awesome and insightful post. When I think of the Holy Spirit,  I primarily think of Him: God with us, helping and empowering us to live a flourishing life that radiates the goodness of God. I don’t know about how many people think of the Holy Spirit, but I’m constantly aware of my need for divine help. As my flesh fights for control, it’s the Spirit that steps in and helps me to be who God created me to be.

  6. Hi Linda,

    Thanks for the helpful and informative post.

    Indeed, HOLY SPIRIT is a person many are not aware of it and thanks for sharing.

    While reading your post I remember Ephesians 4:30 “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

    He is our friend, guide, and protector. HE is the one who is going to take us to our LORD. Without HIM nothing can be done and we need to talk, discuss and invest our time with HIM. As you mentioned, instead of figuring out things on our own when we seek HOLY SPIRIT help HE will guide us to perfection.

    Thanks for this post and GOD bless!

  7. Very beautifully written! I would love to read a second post specifically speaking about “God’s Seven Spirits” to learn more about the subject. It’s something I haven’t heard of before, even after years of going to church. I do have a question. How does God consist of fruits? Is our gifts the same as him having fruits?

    Thank you for helping me think deeper with your post. I look forward to reading more of your future posts 🙂 

  8. Hi Linda, I like the way you express the ideas a lot. I have experienced miracles myself because I let them happen. I also try to be grateful every day for everything I have; even if things are going as well as I’d like. It’s in being thankful and grateful we experience blessings and ‘bonuses’ in life. I hadn’t heard of God’s Seven Spirits before. What does that mean exactly?

  9. love this post about the Holy Spirit. I have learned that one of the things we receive from the Spirit is guidance when we need to take decisions. 

    My question for you is this: If a person is not a christian, is it still possible for that person to get guidance from the Holy Spirit?

    I will also love it if you could explain more about getting guidance if a person is a “christian” because he is born to christian parents but does not attend church activities like bible studies and congregation services. 

    Thanks again for highlighting this issue of guidance from the Holy Spirit. May our Mighty God richly bless you.

    1. Hi Chris,
      Well all this is connected to understanding who the Holy Spirit is.
      When one is born from Christian parents, the seed is planted. One just needs to water it so it can grow and nurrture into the guidance from the Holy Spirit. There are those who do not know anything and still attend church and yet call themselves “christians”. https://lindymonse.com/people-say-no-to-church/
      Then there are those who attended church and left because of a disgraceful experience among fellowship but truly know God. It varies. https://lindymonse.com/religion-vs-spirituality-comparison/
      So basically, all one can do is water it and pray for them because the Holy Spirit won’t be there until one accepts Christ; hence our temple is the Holy Spirit’s body.

  10. This is a very powerful question. The Holy Ghost was sent to abide in the believer forever. Jesus Christ told His disciples that it is expedient for Him to go otherwise the Holy Ghost will not come. he said “I will pray the Father and He will send you another Helper who will abide with you forever”

    The Holy Ghost is the Helper of the Believer, He is the guider, counselor, teacher, strengthener, comforter.

    i have learnt to see him as my Helper and He Has never failed nor forsaken me. I love Him so much

  11. Hi, Linda Monserrat
    Thank you for sharing this article about What does the Holy Spirit do, because I live in China, there is no religious belief, and I lack knowledge in this area. You gave me a preliminary understanding of Holy Spirit, as Emmanuel said. , The Holy Ghost is the Helper of the Believer, He is the guider, counselor, teacher, strengthener, comforter. Let me have a deeper understanding of what you mean by this post.
    So thank you.
